Oven Comparison: Gas vs. Electic

If you have ever tried to sell your house, you know that there is a feature found in the kitchen that can make or break the sale. We are not talking about spacious cabinets a farm sink or a glorious pantry; rather we are referring to the oven. People are extremely loyal to the types of ovens they are used to and I am sure that more than one couple has absolutely loved a house but failed to make an offer because the wife refused to consider a house with an electric oven. While there are a few other cooking options out there, the two most popular choices are an oven run by natural gas or electricity, so what is the real difference between a gas oven and an electric oven? A gas oven is the better choice for roasting. Heated by a flame that is powered by natural gas, the temperature can fluctuate slightly, making baking a game of guesswork. It is hard to bake a prefect batch of cookies when the heat in the oven can be slightly different with each cookie sheet you slide onto a rack. Electric ovens are much better...

 


The Joy of Deep Fat Fryers

Deep fat fryers do exactly what their name suggests: anything that you put into them will be deep-fried in the fat you add (usually vegetable or sunflower oil). Most people who have deep fat fryers use them to make chips from cut strips of potato, but you can actually deep fry just about anything: fish, chicken, sausages, parsnips and carrots are all interesting things to try. Meat with skin will generally form a crispy coating when deep-fried, while thinly-sliced vegetables tend to turn into crisps or chips. The deep fat fryer is the key tool in much fast food, especially British fish and chip shops, where the fish, chips and almost everything else they sell has been deep fried - not exactly healthy, but very tasty. In Scotland, one enterprising fish and chip shop even started deep-frying Mars chocolate bars as a special promotion, and the practice quickly spread. The deep-fried Mars bar is believed by many to be the most unhealthy food in the world, bar none, although America has come a close second with i...

Why Gas Ovens are Great

If you want to take your cooking skills up another notch then it might be time to look at changing to a gas stove. Gas stoves are the preferred choice of professional cooks for the simple reason that they offer more flexibility. The heat adjustments are more accurate and instant. If you turn the gas down, the heat will lower immediately, unlike an electric stove that will take time to cool down to the lower heat setting. Gas stoves also allow varied cooking styles that aren't quite so easily achieved with an electric stove such as wok cooking. Gas stoves give you the ability to fine tune the heat and with the use of a wok you can cook various different meals that wouldn't be possible with an electric cook top. Many people are concerned with the use of gas in the kitchen and in particular the safety aspects of using gas. There are certain adjustments that need to be made to your cooking procedures when cooking with gas, and in particular you need to be aware of the importance of avoiding contact with the...
